Due to heavy demand, Gideon’s Bakehouse has put their new Florida Friend, Stuart Valencia, on an extremely limited-edition Unisex T-Shirt—which will only be available through the rest of this month. Gideon’s exclaims that guests will hurt Stuart’s feelings if they miss out!
If you’ve never been told that swallowing seeds may cause a tree to grow in you, let Stuart Valencia’s tale be a cautionary one. As a pale, sickly boy, Stuart was given oranges to help bring a bit of color back to his deathly pallor. This worked like a charm. Believing you can never get enough of a good thing, he ate oranges for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—no part of the orange was spared. And as the months and years changed, so did Stuart, transforming into the living embodiment of you are what you eat. Being part orange tree and part forever boy, Stuart has lived for generations in the groves of Florida, content in his solitude until now, where he appeared at Gideon’s Bakehouse with a very special recipe he wants to share with the world.
